- Do different arm placements (including arms on armrests/devices, arms on knees, arms free, and arm crossed over chest) influence outcomes of sit-to-stand test (STST) in ambulatory individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI)?
- What are the factors associated with ability to perform STST in ambulatory individuals with SCI?
- Are the single-time sit-to-stand test (STSST) and five-time sit-to-stand test (FTSST) reliable, valid and responsive to determine functional alteration in ambulatory individuals with SCI?
|Condition or disease|
|Spinal Cord Injuries|
- To cross-sectionally compare characteristics (duration and amount of lower limb loading) of STS movements among 4 arm placement conditions (arms on armrests/devices, arms on knees, arms free, and arm crossed over chest) in ambulatory patients with SCI.
- To investigate reliability (inter-rater, intra-rater, and test-retest), standard error of measurement and minimal detectable changes of the STSST and FTSST in ambulatory patients with SCI.
- To investigate concurrent validity and factors associated with ability of the STSST and FTSST in ambulatory patients with SCI.
- To investigate the ability of the STSST and FTSST to predict the risk of falls over 1, 3 and 6 months in ambulatory patients with SCI.
- To investigate internal and external responsiveness of the STSST and FTSST to detect changes on walking ability over 1, 3 and 6 months in ambulatory patients with SCI.
- To estimate the minimal clinically important difference or clinical significance of the FTSST in ambulatory patients with SCI.

Ambulatory patients with SCI
- Ability to perform single and five times sit-to-stand test among 4 arm conditions [ Time Frame: Change over 6 months ]Ability to execute a single time sit-to-stand and time used for five times sit-to-stand
- 10-meter walk test [ Time Frame: Change over 6 months ]Change in walking speed during 6-month follow-up
- Fall events [ Time Frame: Over 6 months ]Incidence of fall during 6-month follow-up
- Global rating of change score (GRC score) [ Time Frame: Change over 6 months ]Level of change in subjects' independence in activities of daily life. The GRC score is divided into 15-point scale from "-7" (a very great deal worse) to "0" (about the same/ not change) to "7" (a very great deal better).
